Trym delivers a barber on-demand to your home to cut your hair. I worked on this project with a friend, he got the barbers and did marketing while I build the site.
Arshia is working on this full-time as his start up but I couldn't fully commit to another startup so I put this on hold.
A mobile marketplace for 'selling to your friends first,' similar to letgo or OfferUp but taking advantage of your social network. It's a React Native app (iOS is stable, Android was under construction when we stopped working on the project) with a Firebase / Google Cloud backend.
I worked on it with a friend of mine and we received a Letter of Intent from an accelorator to invest in us. However, my co-founder didn't want to take the investment. I was very excited to take Selbi seriously so we split ways and I open sourced the code.

Fun things I actually use
Nudge blocks distracting apps and suggests alternative activities. The idea is to break the habit cycle. You have some trigger (eg. feeling sad or lonely or bored) that causes you to instinctively open an addicting app. Nudge blocks the app and suggests an alternative app like Kindle or a meditation app that you might find more productive.
Email chains often build up a lot of info and context. A number of times I've wanted to save or share an email chain as an artifact outside of my normal email client.
An android app to filter notification down to only the important ones. It filters all notifications without "@username" and uses machine learning to offer improved filters over time.
This is a Messenger bot to generate random workouts and walk me through the workout. It's currently private since bots require an approval but shoot me an email if you wanna try it.
This is a daily habit tracker. There are a million of these but (1) everyone has one so that market is huge and (2) for some reason all of them use trinary yes-no-ignore scale which is a poor model for habits. Counterz is a different take on the habit tracker concept based around counters instead of check-ins. For example, I want to note when I do an extra good job an read an extra hour or it's ok to watch 1 hours of TV but not 5. A check-in model loses that interesting granularity but a counter does not.
An android game for comparing how well one can say the word "penis." It's totally a joke but some people will get really into it.
